Man Beast (1956)
Another cheap horror hodgepodge from the redoubtable Jerry Warren, Man Beast consists largely of footage from a forgotten Mexican production. The patchwork plot concerns a Himalayan expedition conducted by Trevor Hudson (Lloyd Nelson) and Connie Haward (Virigina Maynor). While searching for Connie's lost brother, the explorers make contact with Dr. Erickson (George Wells Lewis), an expert on the "Yeti", or Abominable Snowman. It is Erickson's contention that the Yeti are actually primitive human beings, a theory that is borne out when mountain guide Varga (George Skaff), himself a descendant of the Yeti, kidnaps Connie for breeding purposes. None of the newly shot scenes properly match the stock footage from earlier sources, but this is the least of the film's problems.
